You’re going to love this easy recipe for crockpot chicken with peach stuffing. The whole thing cooks in the crockpot – even the stuffing!
One of our readers sent us her favorite recipe for crockpot chicken with peach stuffing. We loved that it was a one-pot meal and that it contained a starch, which doesn’t happen that often in crockpot meals. I was also really intrigued by the use of allspice as I had only ever really used it in Jerk food like my Crockpot Caribbean Jerk Chicken Tacos.
Honestly, the only thing I changed about it was that I used frozen peaches instead of canned peaches because canned peaches are often served in heavy syrup which isn’t that great for you. I also used chicken broth instead of water to add a little more savory flavor. Oh, I also doubled the amount of chicken because we like leftovers! The first time I made it I used plain dry stuffing. It was delicious, but I decided to try it again using herbed dry stuffing and I liked it even more.
